Catchment Adjustment Factors
What is it?
If you qualify for adjustment factors, they are added to your selection rank and may improve your chances of receiving an offer for your preferred degree. Macquarie offers five additional adjustment factors to students who live in Macquarie's catchment region. These are called catchment adjustment factors. Use the tool below to check if your postcode qualifies. If you qualify, you will automatically receive five adjustment factors when you have a Macquarie course listed as one of your preferences through UAC.
Catchment Adjustment Factors are applicable to all undergraduate bachelor programs, except Bachelor of Actuarial Studies and its double degrees, Bachelor of Clinical Science and Macquarie’s Cooperative Education programs (Co-op).
For all other courses, students may receive a maximum of 10 additional factors combined across all adjustment factor schemes, excluding Bachelor of Advanced Science for which students may receive a maximum of 6 adjustment factors and Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and its double degrees for which students may receive a maximum of 8 adjustment factors.
PLEASE NOTE: If you qualify for both the Catchment Adjustment Factors and the Regional Entry Scheme, you will only receive adjustment factors for one, from whichever scheme awards you the highest amount.
